Year 5/6 Bouldering Team Qualify For City Finals

The Dore Primary Bouldering Team recently competed in a qualifying session for the Sheffield Schools Bouldering Championship, at the Climbing Works in Sheffield.

All the children had a great time and showed great determination and enthusiasm in scaling difficult climbing routes. Staff and pupils thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon session and we were fortunate to have a lot of parents attend to spectate as well. The Boulderers were coached by Climbing Works coaches and learnt many new techniques and skills.

Special mention should go to Alex and Georgie, who showed great resilience and determination, in completing some challenging climbs and also jumping straight back on the wall after some dramatic falls on to the mat!

The scores of our six strongest climbers were added together to get our team score, which was strong enough to earn Dore a place in the final with the 12 top schools in Sheffield!

A big well done from Mr Paterson and all the teachers!
